where president obama only won by 14,000 votes four years ago. there's many more hispanic voters than that. i think the philosophy or the strategy for the romney camp i to try to win some of those voters back. they're doing it by going on the air with advertising. a lot of the advertising is advertising introducing mitt romney to voters because aate lot of people don't know him. biographical ads. you have some with his son craig who is a fluent spanish speaker, speaking directly to hispanics. that's very important. he does that. then you've also got some ads where they talk about an ad they call the truth. they try to tell what they see as the truth about president obama where he's fallen short. they're trying to sell that kind of three-pronged message to hispanics in raleigh and try to win some of tho votes >> woodruff: this is a message that is specifically tailored to the latino, to the hispanic community some >> yes. i think all of his... most of his ads are although i've talked to some analysts who have been somewhat critical of the romney camp for some of the ads they put t

pause when he said four years. i think he meant to say the last 10 years, and it came out wrong. this is fodder for the obama campaign. it will not change, i do not think, in a huge way, the course of events, buthere is no question the obama campaign folks, every time biden is out there, they are nervous about what he is going to say, how it comes out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning up barack obama. >> what do you think? the vice presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along well. those two were the ones that had allhe protestants. i think this will be a fun debate, and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him paint barack obama in his debate. >> i hope it is more interesting. yes, there were 50 million people calling the first debate, and the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play, and this is unbelievably borig. if i did n havto do this for a

president obama's health care law, the supreme court is back with a docket that may even rival last year's term for drama. the justices will decide a case on affirmative action in higher education, and are expected to take up disputes on same-sex marriage, civil rights law, and more. the term opened today with arguments in another controversial case: whether businesses can be sued in u.s. courts for human rights violations that occur in foreign countries. marcia coyle of the "national law journal" was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. welcome back. >> nice to be back. brown: let us stipulate, as the lawyers say, that last year was a blockbuster. >> absolutely. brown: new this term has some potential itself as well, right? affirmative action. >> yes, it does, jeff. it would be a different kind of blockbuster term. last term was really a lot about the structuref government under the constitution. did congress exceed its law-making powers under the constitution when it enacted the health care law? what role do state governments have in enforcing immigration la

think of the last time obama gave a good political speech. and i think it's been a couple years he gave a very good nonpolitical speech, to gabbie giffords but i can't think of a good political speech he's given. and you know it's tough to be president. you get fat agencied. and if you are sort of only peripherally engaged or not the superengaged person, ronald reagan was not engaged in every detail, he could have the stam no-- stamina to do t but obama is engaged in everything. and i do think there is a sense of fat agency that one senses around the white house and one senses around him. nd so to get the passion that he had in 2008, i think is just hard given everything he's been through. >> you think that explains, mark, partly what happened? >> it may well, judy. 48 hours later, first of all, just a personal note, i have speculated on debate night that the president's passive performance and it was quite passive, listless, may have been attributed in part to john kerry, his sparring partner in the prep sessions who is a leading contender to be secretary of state maybe not going

precisely so as to avoid being trapped by it. but the other point to make is that president obama has had several years. during those years the options that he took or the choices that he took narrowed the options that he has today so one of the reasons why governor romney's approach to iran looked similar in some respects to president obama's is because governor romney would have done thin very different twoor tree years ago. governor romney maids a critique in june of 2009. that's when to begin. >> woodruff: let me ask you very quickly, would governor romney, for example, be more willing to let israel go ahead and attack iran if it come to that? >> governor romney has made it clear can't dictate to israel how israel protects itself from what it considers to be an existential threat. governor romney hassles said that he would be israel's strongest supporter in the region. he's worried about president obama's decision to create daylight between the united states and israel. >> woodruff: let me turn then to michelle flournoy. how do you respond for the campaign? >> the iran case is a great

around the table afterwards? >> the obama campaign actually did use twitter four years ago which is interesting because not that many of us were on it, and not that many people were paying attention. the romney campaign did something a little more innovative, they talked about how they treated from the former governor's account, which is something they did during the convention, and they got followers. and instead of doing what they normally do, put out all these press releases with rapid response, fact check, they createdda of a tumplr-- >> woodruff: you have to explain for people watching. >> tumblr is a blog site where you can put up a bunch of different messages. for them, they could get their people to spread that to their network. interest will enough, when you looked on facebook, a lot of those posts were trending. it wasn't necessarily the jokes or what coloritize like on twitter. >> ifill: what jokes? did i miss the jokes. >> big bird was the big one. >> woodruff: was there a consensus about who came out on top or both sides arguing for their guy? >> shockingly enough, part

four years ago. >>> what's effective about that is that what governor romney has to do is persuade people who voted for president obama that they shouldn't vote for him again. if the attack is strong on his competence or strong on some facet of his leadership, the danger is people hunker down and defend their original vote. this situates the voter where the voter is right now, it says, "we license you to reject the incumbent." it's an ad that says, "let's make this a referendum. >> what about the pro-obama ad? what's the most effective ad they've run that is believable? >> i think the most effective ad that they have is on the air right now. it's capturing a small segment of the statement that governor romney made behind closed doors, not realized he was being taped, about the 47%. and it puts pictures of people who fall into that 47% on the screen and basically suggests that governor romney doesn't want to represent you and you and you. >>> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax, including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> my job is not to worry about those

time since barack obama had a debate, it's been four years. and the last four years since he last left the stage with john mccain in october of 2008, there's almost no one whose argued with him almost under any circumstance. he's had four years of yes men, nodding their head and agreeing with everything he says. you get up on that stage and you're rusty to begin with and then you have someone who is up there who is right in your face. >> rose: nobody goes into the oval office and says mr. president you got it wrong. >> they do -- >> they do what? >> you could feel it. it's a lot easier in debate to say mitt that's the stupidest answer you ever heard you sound like a rich idiot. it's hard to say mr. president you put me to sleep with that boring answer. as an old campaign hack it read to me a very weak debate threat. it's intertingo think about what their internal staff is going to be. first of all they're going to give biden a bayonet next week to carve ryan up. i don't think biden is good at it. we could have an over reaction biden show. second, there's one point and i agree totally w

point that president obama in his view had departed from 70 years of bipartisan agreement, an agreement in which you would sort of focus on your allies first and not on engaging your adversaries. what i think was missing from e sech was any direct engagement with the question of the bush years and the bush doctrine. >> rose: we conclude with lisa randall, she is a theoretical physicist at harvard talking about new discoveries based on the higgs boson theory. >> one of the things that was so interesting about this discovery is it didn't have to look like this. there are other types of particles, other sectors that can make the higgs megaisim in work. the higgs boson is in some sense the simpleest possibility but it could be more complicated and that's o ofhe raso that the experiments are now studying in detail the properties of the higgs boson, to find out is it really the simplest example that implement this is mechanism or is it something richer and deeper that sheds light on what goes beyond? >> rose: politics, foreign policy, and physics when we continue. , with governor ro
